Pearls and Pitfalls in Thoracic Imaging: Variants and Other Difficult Diagnoses 1st Edition

Pearls and Pitfalls in Thoracic Imaging: Variants and Other Difficult Diagnoses 1st Edition

How often have you been confronted with an image on a thoracic CT exam where you knew it didn’t look ‘normal’, but you weren’t sure whether it was ‘abnormal’ either? And if it is abnormal, is there a specific diagnosis you should be able to make directly off the images? Pearls and Pitfalls in Thoracic Imaging is your one-stop resource to answer questions such as: Is this a normal variant or a disease-related abnormality? Are these findings specific for an uncommon disease and if so what is the diagnosis? Is this set of findings strongly suggestive of a diagnosis? Which additional imaging test will allow me to be confident in that diagnosis? Could the ‘abnormality’ be due to an artifact mimicking disease? Written by leading thoracic radiologists and with concise, image-rich descriptions, Pearls and Pitfalls in Thoracic Imaging is an invaluable diagnostic tool for every radiologist.

Normal Findings in Radiography 1st Edition

Normal Findings in Radiography 1st Edition

This book deals with a subject that is seemingly trivial: normal findings in radiology. However, the normal is also the frequent, but not always the simple. Every radiologist has experienced difficulties in the systematics of imaging and with phrasing the diagnosis. This book is intended to answer three questions:

  • How should the diagnosis be phrased?
  • Which general scheme can I use to evaluate an image; how can I check for the degree of normality?
  • Which data allow me to evidence normality, and what measurements should be taken?

In spite of the introducion of digital X-ray imaging, the interpretation of conventional X-rays has not basically changed during the past ten years, which is evidenced by the development of this book. Since its first publication in 1987, it has gone through several unchanged reprints. In the 2nd German edition the text has hardly been changed; however, several new images have been added.

The method of making findings and the systematic method of interpreting images are still relevant today. Consequently, the strict and systematic organization of the book was left unchanged. The new layout leads to a clearer accessibility of the material for the reader.
